1870 – 1880 Officer Pillbox Hat

Through the 1870’s and well into the 1880’s some officers adopted the British style pillbox hat, though a non regulation hat, both the Army and Cavalry adopted the hat.  It was not as ridged  as the British pattern and modelled with a gold chin strap over the top and two US Eagle buttons on either side with a branch of service in gold bullion wire.

Please state branch of service.
